Glaetzer Godolphin 2005
Ben assumed the reins of his family’s Barossa winery, Glaettzer in 2002 and since then has been establishing himself as one of the stars of the region.
Wine Advocate: "The 2005 Godolphin, a blend of 80% Shiraz (from 85-year-old vines) and 20% Cabernet Sauvignon (from 60-year-old vines), was aged in 100% new oak, primarily 300-liter French hogsheads. It represents a beautiful marriage of power and elegance, displaying an inky/blue/purple colour as well as notions of black raspberries, blueberries, graphite, and sweet pain grille. Ripe, pure, and medium to full-bodied with sweet but noticeable tannin." 93 points
